Reasons to volunteer
Here are three important business reasons you and your firm should be volunteering:
- Network. The most essential part of any business.
- Show your stuff. Volunteering and community service show potential customers the integrity of your company and demonstrates the quality of your work.
- Get attention. No better way to get positive PR exposure, and attracting new customers doesn’t hurt either.
